Following reluctance shown by allies of the United States to strike Syria, President Barack Obama is meeting with senior national security advisers at the White House to discuss plans for possible military action against Syria as Washington readies to strike alone.

The meeting should be followed by the public release of a report on intelligence the US has gathered about last week’s deadly chemical weapons attack in Syria which convinced them of the Syrian regime’s culpability in the chemical weapons attack on Syria.

Obama says the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad perpetrated the attack. But he has yet to present definitive evidence to back up the assertion.

Secretary of State John Kerry will speak about the intelligence report and the broader situation in Syria on Friday (US time).

Obama may also speak about Syria during the public portion of a White House meeting with Baltic leaders.
